We give every child the foundation for lifelong learning and achievement

The Achievement Gap

  • Children from poor families enter school having been exposed, on average, to over 30 million fewer words than their more affluent peers.
  • There is an almost 90% chance that a child who is a poor reader at the end of grade 1 will be a poor reader in grade 4.
  • Children not reading at grade level by the end of the third grade are at serious risk of never graduating from high school.
